Alright! Picture time!
Unfortunately, this is the clearest picture we managed to get of the two of us. I'm in a really weird position, because I'm the one holding the camera, lol.
The scarf I'm wearing, as well as the radish earrings, are made by SidekickFancy. The scarf is INCREDIBLY soft, and really, really long. When it's wrapped around my neck once, the ends still come down to my knees. <3
I've been wanting radish earrings for such a long time.
I also got a snowglobe, with a fabulous picture of Ginny, and a box made out of a book, painted with the hufflepuff colors and topped with my initials!
And what's even better?
The book was stuffed with candy! A box of Bertie Bott's Beans, a bag of Drooble's Best Blowing Gum, two sticks of rock candy, and tons of taffy!
Currently, there is one piece each of the taffy and rock candy left, and I had two pieces of gum last night, which (as Fancy warned me it would) turned my entire mouth blue.
I haven't tried the jellybeans yet, because I'm scared of the yucky flavors.
I also got a little yellow telescope-type-thing, a shrinky-dink snitch, which I'll either use as a keychain or a zipper pull, one of Hagrid's rock cakes (it's really a funny-looking super-bounce ball), a big glow-in-the-dark star, and a Shrinky-dink version of my Hufflepuff Seeker icon! <3 <3 <3
I was playing around with the telescope and star the other night, pretending I was in Astronomy class.
Fancy made me the most fabulous shirt:
"Badgers Are Friends, Not Food"
It combines Harry Potter, Finding Nemo, and vegetarianism, lol. How could I not love it?!
And, most amazing of all, the advent calendar:
(Yeah, um, ignore the dishes in the foreground. The restaurant's tables aren't very big. The poor waitress had to keep trying to find space to put our orders down among all the swap stuff.)
She made me a wooden advent calendar with a painting of Hagrid, Ginny and Harry (holding hands), Luna, Dumbledore, Ron and Hermione (also holding hands), and Fred and George, standing in front of a Christmas tree, with lots of floating candles around.
And inside each of the compartments is a little ornament! (Or at least, I think they're all ornaments. I've been a good girl, and I've only opened the ones I should, lol.)
So far, I've gotten:
Dec 1 - the Sorting Hat
Dec 2 - Aragog (/an acromantula)
Dec 3 - a crown with a "W" (because Weasley Is Our King!)
Dec 4 - a blue Bertie Bott's Bean (I've decided it's blueberry cheescake flavored.)
I bought myself a little fake tree yesterday so that I could put them up.
Pictures of the ornaments will come later, as I get more.
Thank you, Fancy!
